Who is Rodney Mathews on ‘The Bachelorette’ 2021 with Michelle Young?

According to Rodney’s Bachelorette profile on ABC, he is from Rancho Cucamonga, California, which is pretty far away from Michelle’s home state of Minnesota. But can Michelle and Rodney still go the distance? The contestant is looking for someone who is “honest, active and ideally a former student-athlete like himself.” So it seems like the romance couple work.

Meanwhile, Michelle told Entertainment Tonight to keep an eye on Rodney during The Bachelorette premiere. “Apple of my eye, Rodney — there’s a lot to see there,” she said.

How old is Rodney Mathews and what does he do for a living?

Rodney is 29-years-old, and he works as a sales representative for a living. Per his profile on ABC, the reality star was going to be in the NFL. However, his dreams were “shattered by a career-ending injury.” But even so, Rodney found a new passion, and he enjoys his job now.

What is Rodney Mathews’ Instagram?

The Bachelorette fans can find Rodney on Instagram under the handle @rodneymathews02. One look at the contestant’s feed will tell you he loves football and being with his friends and family. 

Now, Rodney has teased his first appearance on The Bachelorette. On Oct. 19, the cast member posted a photo with Michelle, and he’s wearing an apple costume. But Rodney’s Instagram caption didn’t exactly hint how far he got on the show.

“Here we go! It’s finally time! Don’t miss the premiere of #TheBachelorette,” Rodney wrote.
